A teacher has many things that they must teach a child.

From this course, I learned that a teacher has many things that they must teach a child. The content, character, and being a duel citizen in the 21st century are three things that are assigned to teachers. First, there are six pillars that construct a person’s character. It is important for teachers to help build students character. By doing so, this will establish a more respectful environment for all. It will create a safer environment without any bullying within the digital or dirt worlds. Moreover, it is important for teachers to teach the difference between empathy and compassion. Empathy directs a need that the impacted individual has to have. Compassion is an action that helps establish that need for the impacted individual. As teachers, we must move students to compassion action. Students must be able to recognize the need of an impacted individual before any action can be taken. This can be done through teaching mean vs nice. Students need to have wait time before they react to something. This will allow students to reflect on their own thinking. This is something that I will be doing to help transition students in being more equipped for the 21st Century as possible. Therefore, the most valuable thing that I learned to mean vs nice. Lastly, I think it is important to teach students about the cultural diversity that exists in the world around them. This is the first step in moving towards duel citizenship. This can be done from a show and tell of a student’s culture, have a cultural club, or a cultural day in which students learn about different cultures around them. By doing so, this would help maintain safety, order, and rights within my school.

COVID-19 Effects

For a year now we have escaped our regular lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I can speak for everyone when saying that quarantine has affected us mentally, socially, and physically.

Digital Footprint is so important

In order to be a highly effective teacher it is essential to conduct lessons that include students going online independently.

I look forward to my mentoring sessions!

During the time that I have been working with Generation Text Online Mentor Program I have made wonderful friends, learned a lot about myself, and gained a sense of pride and responsibility in my dealings with my peers.
